It is that time of the month again. And despite my busier schedule, I am happy to be able to participate. I figure I needed to create a retirement card anyway, so why not use this adorable inspiration photo....
and this colour combo (well, at least some of the colours).
And here is what I came up with... It is for a dear colleague of mine who is retiring from the company after more than 37 years of service. Yes, 37 years! I am so happy for her and she has fabulous plans of travelling the world on this new phase of her life... hence the airplane!
I used various square dies from Papertrey, stamps (Mega Mixed Messages, Framed Out #1 and Little Hot Rod), paper (raspberry fizz, harvest gold and tropical teal), ink (true black, raspberry fizz) and cardstock (true black). Lately, I find that I cannot create without putting some form of a black accent. It is not any different with this card. Love the impact a black colour brings to any project.
Thanks for stopping by and happy hopping!
